EPSRCWe are currently recruiting graduates in Engineering or the Physical Sciences for October 2011 who have obtained, or expect to obtain, a first or upper second class honours degree to join the Medical Devices Doctoral Training Centre at the University of Strathclyde which is funded by the EPSRC Life Sciences Interface Programme.

The centre is designed to allow graduates to carry out research relevant to problems in healthcare that can be addressed through new medical devices or related technologies. The students of the centre have the opportunity to work with medical companies and NHS and other clinical groups in state of the art research projects. The projects carried out in the centre have a high degree of relevance to the clinicians, patients and medical companies who are the end users of such research.


Scientists from University of Strathclyde have devised a novel way to harness natural vitamin E extract that would kill tumours within 10 days.

Using a new delivery system, the research team could mobilise an extract from Vitamin E, known ton have anti-cancer properties, to attack cancerous cells.

In the study conducted over skin cancer, the researchers found that tumours started to shrink within 24 hours and almost vanished in ten days.

They believe the tumours might have been completely destroyed if the tests had continued for longer.

When the tumours regrew, they did so at a far slower rate than previously.
